FREE Monthly Lunch & Learn Webinar:

Ecology of the riverfront area and the importance of regulation within the WPA

November 12, 2019 at 12 Noon.

Registration Link Coming Soon.

In this presentation, we will discuss the geomorphic and ecological value of the riverfront area adjacent to rivers and streams in Massachusetts. We will review basic principals of river and floodplain interactions. We will also discuss some of the various ecosystems that are found within riverfront areas and their habitat services and functions. The regulations protecting the riverfront areas within MA will be summarized. Case studies and images of riverfront areas will be used throughout the presentation to illustrate topics discussed.
